Bexhill-on-Sea likely came into being when King Offa granted permission for a church to be built there. There are several references to him around the town, notably a school and major road. It remained a small village until the popularity of seaside resorts started to grow during the 1800’s. The Earls De La Warr were responsible for the growth of the town around the train station, culmulating in the building of the De La Warr Pavilion in 1935.
As you can see from the photograph, the town boasts a wide promenade, which stretches for miles. It’s great for walking along when the weather is good. The beach is mainly shingle apart from at low tide.
